Keep parent category selected


Recommended Posts


I already modified my category-tree-branch.tpl to show the class="selected" on LI elements instead of A elements.

When one of my primary navigation options is selected, it works great. But when I select a child (secondary navigation level), the class="selected" appears only on the child LI and disappears from parent LI.

QUESTION: How can I echo class="selected" on parent element also?

A quick and dirty solution for my problem:

$().ready(function() {
   if($('#main-nav ul li ul li.active').length > 0) {
       $('#main-nav ul li ul li.active').parent().parent().addClass('active');

Works for me, at the moment. :)

I'd still rather see a solution with PHP since not everybody has JavaScript..
